addiing a subnet to ADSS what are the risks

i have a physical location in my forest that is not represented by a subnet assigned to a site in ADSS , what happends when this is like this , the location is BASRA this is a physical site and it does not have a subnet object defined for it in ADSS does this mean that it will look to another site for GC info , DNS? how does this all work , i know i need to add this and associte it with the correct physical site , but i need to know what will be affected and what i need to watch out for in general

Hey,

If no subnet is defined the clients will connect to a DC which advertises itself using generic service records (essentially records that are not linked to a specific site).

That may result in a very poor choice since the system has no good way of determining the cost of a link. For instance, it could result in a connection to a hub-site on a slow link, if that hub-site published the appropriate service records in DNS.

If you need the site to authenticate using DCs for another site you should add the subnet to the existing site (logical site rather than physical site). I guess you don't have any Domain Controllers within that site?
